Default 10 Reasons why X-Cart 4.1.x is an improvement.

I've taken the time to review the latest and greatest X-Cart version 4.1.x

Kudos to the X-Cart team!

Here's my overview with the 10 reasons cut.

... snippet ...

All-in-all, I hear most mod developers saying this should of been X-Cart 5, instead of a sub-version like it was, as ALOT of systems have been re-written and thought through more closely.

See for yourself, use www.mysqldiff.com and compare a 4.0.x DB to 4.1.x and you'll see the many changes, especially in indexes to help speed up X-Cart even more.

Two thumbs up for me. I don't plan on using 4.1.x however for atleast a few more bug fix releases, It was around 4.0.5-7 that a stable, usuable release for 4.0.x was starting to be used more widely. I wouldn't recommend upgrading yet, but I would defiantly start looking into routes to take once you've used 4.1.x enough and feel its suitable and stable enough for your bussiness model.

I agree with virtually everything boomer said in his blog. The one thing that does need to be simplified a bit thought is the crazy import screen design, it's powerful but over the top in terms of what is displayed, splitting it up would help with user friendlyness there.

A note to everyone who's already using it for live use, many many of the mods posted on this forum, 3rd party add ons and 3rd party mods are still not compatible with x-cart 4.1.X due to the massive changes all round the system, it's a bigger change than x-cart 3 to x-cart 4.

Take care when applying any 4.X mods of any sort to 4.1.X
